The folks at Steyr Arms have worked up a limited run of 300 Jeff Cooper Scout Commemorative Rifles.
Just as no one sells a good cast iron pot at a yard sale, authentic Steyr Jeff Cooper Scouts are rarely available for sale at gun shops or gun shows.
The general purpose rifle- good for first shot hits from improvised positions at unknown distances with a cartridge appropriate for the target and limited time opportunity.
Get yours while you can.
Just a thought.

Colonel Jeff Cooper’s Signature Steyr Scout Returns In A Limited Edition Commemorative Package
TRUSSVILLE, Alabama (June 7, 2010) — Steyr Arms has announced an extremely limited production run of the Jeff Cooper Scout Rifle in a commemorative package. This package is in the Scout’s originally designed configuration as specified by legendary small-arms expert, author and founder of what would later become the Gunsite Training Center, United States Marine Corps Lt. Col. John Dean “Jeff” Cooper (1920-2006). Adorned with Col. Cooper’s “JC” crest-of-arms, the first rifle of this special run, serial number JC001, made its public debut at the 2010 NRA Annual Meetings in Charlotte, NC.
Throughout much of the 1990s, Col. Cooper worked very closely with Steyr to produce what he would eventually consider to be the benchmark of his Scout rifle concept. As the ideal general-purpose rifle in the ideal general-purpose chambering, Col. Cooper’s requirements were exceptionally specific, and the resulting .308 Win. rifle was nothing short of brilliant when finally introduced in 1999. Still today, it stands as the ultimate testament to Col. Cooper’s meticulous understanding of firearms, tactics, ballistics and ultimate survival.
